Alone and Invisible No More

How Grassroots Community Action and 21st Century Technologies Can Empower Elders to Stay in Their Homes and Lead Healthier, Happier Lives

by Allan Teel, M.D.


  • Foreword Reviews (09/01/2011) Aging Well: Developing better health strategies is vital at any
    age, but for the elderly it’s especially important. Staying connected to community resources and
    taking charge of one’s wellness can empower seniors and boost overall health to a large degree.

    A call for widespread change comes from Alone and Invisible No More: How Grassroots Community
    Action and Twenty-First Century Technologies Can Empower Elders to Stay in Their Homes and
    Lead Healthier, Happier Lives
    (Chelsea Green Publishing, 978-1-60358-379-4) by Allan Teel.

    “What are we doing?” writes the author, a physician. “We have segregated, isolated, and often marginalized a large group of older citizens who should be treated like celebrities at the later stages of
    their lives.” In a culture that worships youth and wealth, Americans have pushed their elders aside,
    Teel argues, and as a result, healthcare costs have soared. In his persuasive work on shifting this model, the doctor looks at how communities care for their elders and presents a plan that benefits everyone. Not only can older people live richer, healthier lives, but those around them can benefit from their experience and create a community based on wellness and mutual respect. ELIZABETH MILLARD
